Harry Potter Fans Discover a Hilarious Sex Clue on the Marauders Map

Use the Conjunctivitis Curse on your kids to cover their eyes!!

Harry Potter fans have discovered a very distinctive, yet hilarious, “sex scene” in the final minutes of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

As you may recall, the final credits which list the names of all of the people who worked on the film, are set to a backing of the infamous Marauders Map.

The final scenes show tiny footsteps walking around the castle, just as it does throughout the series, and when we go past a quiet alcove, there are four footsteps positioned in one place.

According to The Sun, who reported on this funny detail most recently, two people can be seen in an, ahem, compromising position.

If you look at the prints, it seems that one person has their back against the wall with their legs apart, while the other stands in front of them, facing their partner.

Check it out for yourself.

Even if you’ve watched the film 50 times, you may have missed this tidbit due to the fact the credits roll at 11-minutes long.

In an interview with Huffington Post back in 2015, the creator of the sequence Rus Wetherell explained how he was able to sneak it into the final cut.

Wetherell worked on the credits for 20 days (!!) and one early morning, at 4am, he discovered a little nook and decided to add in the saucy secret.

“There was an alcove in the artwork, it was kind of like an opportunity to have a couple of students hiding in there,” he said. “So I just threw a couple of feet down.

“It was just something there that was amusing for the adults in the audience and kids wouldn’t really understand.”

According to the designer, he had every intention of deleting it, however, director Alfonso Cuarón thought it was funny and told him to leave it in.

Despite being discovered years ago, the finding has resurfaced causing fans to speculate about which characters are engaged in the act, however, Wetherall said it was no one in particular and it was actually meant to portray an innocent kiss.

“Maybe it was meant to be Harry, but we’ve all been kids, we’ve all been in school and stuff …It was just a sort of little peck on the cheek,” he said during the interview.

In fact, the couple’s feet “are in an embrace” and “not having sex as everyone says.”

Whatever it was meant to be, it’s very well played.
